Despite spending most of 1997-2005 (and beyond) drenched in pomade, Jon had never seen this seminal teen proto-bratpack movie. Basically, this episode eschews our usual format because neither of us took very good notes. Jon (Greaser) gets mad about Gone With the Wind. Ali (Soc) gets beyond mad and basically invents a new rage-based emotion about Catcher In the Rye. Jon is also ready to rumble.
The Outsiders was directed by Francis Ford Coppola, with a screenplay by Kathleen Rowell, based on the S.E. Hinton novel. It stars Soul Man's C. Thomas Howell, Matt Dillon, The Karate Kid, Chris Traeger, The Swayze, Charlie Sheen's brother, that Scientologist guy, Lief Garrett, Diane Lane and a bunch of weird looking featured extras. Oh, and Tom Waits.
